Matrax Solid Deck Timber Mats Improve Poor Soil Conditions in Teaneck, NJ

Super-saturated ground conditions were causing site access issues for The Accent Group. The soil was turning to muck, and the heavy equipment was pushing the temporary stone they had installed into the ground making it useless. With more work in different locations still ahead, they needed to find a solution that would control costs, be easy to install and remove, and would provide a safe and stable work platform for their outrigger equipment.

The Matrax Solid Deck access mats met all the requirements. In just a few hours, 200 linear feet of matting was installed to create a temporary roadway. The solid deck top is designed to hold up better than the traditional “gap” 3-ply mats to heavy equipment. The solid deck bottom helps keep mud from tracking into the mats and adding weight to the return shipment. And, The Accent Group could easily move the mats to the other parts of the project.
